Yoga 530-14IKB Yoga Mode Control has very high cpu and battery usage

2019-04-25, 17:10 PM

I've recently (13th of April) bought new Yoga 530-14IKB. It has adequate CPU i3-8130U, which is faster than i5-6200U in my sister's Acer laptop, but I anyway don't play any games. Despite that, its battery life isn't good. It works about 3-3,5 hours in Chrome. In task manager I've noticed that Yoga Mode Control is constantly using 15-30% CPU and its battery usage is described as very high. After disabling it, I can't switch to the tablet mode and keyboard and touchpad don't turn off. Is there somebody who has Yoga laptop and experience similar problem?

Hi! I had exactly the same problem on my Yoga 530. You have to update the "Lenovo Yoga Mode Control Device"-driver. Just open device mangager > system devices > Lenovo Yoga Mode Control Device. Then right click on "Lenovo Yoga Mode Control Device", choose "Update driver" and then choose "Automatically search for new driver software". Windows should install version You can check if it is that version by double-clicking on "Lenovo Yoga Mode Control Device" and then choosing the tab "Driver".

I have not Lenovo Yoga Mode Control Device in the Device Manager, then I can't update it.


Any other idea? YMC is taking 30% of my CPU.
